NEVIS, Minn. (WCCO) – A glitch caused quite a panic for parents in one Minnesota school district.

On Tuesday morning, 520 parents got automated messages from the Nevis school district saying their children weren’t at school.

The automated service was intended for just two students whose absences had not been verified.

The school dealt with hundreds of calls from confused parents.

The glitch was fixed, and a second call was sent to parents to disregard the first call.

The system was back to normal on Wednesday.
